First Surreal Animation

This inspired trip is "Fantasmagorie" from 1908, made by Emile Cohl. Some of the old cartoons were very bizarre... for example, Russian scientist Ladislas Starevitch used to create animated films using dead insects with wire limbs. Another very strange cartoon is this one... "You wanna be a member?"

Gregory Peck from "To Kill a Mockingbird", methinks, not Alain Delon

You do know that SCUBA stands for "Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus" don't you? That ain't self contained.

See if you can find any Oskar Fischinger animations. He worked in the 1920s, first in Germany, then came to Hollywood. The opening sequence for Disney's Fantasia is based on his work.

YouTube has a lot of "based on" and "inspired by" videos, but the real thing is always the real thing.

Much of Winsor McKay's animation has been recovered and is available on DVD. The creator of _Little Nemo_ and _Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend_ produced multiple works, some for those newspaper comics as well as the famous _Gertie the Dinosaur_.
